"Buffett has generously endowed us all with a sensible and intelligent roadmap for investing."
Robert G Hagstrom

"Warren Buffett - The Oracle of Everything. He has been right about the stock market, rotten accounting, CEO greed, and corporate governance. The rest of us are just catching on."

"Warren Buffett has turned value investing into an art form, piling up the world's second largest individual fortune and persuading millions to mimic the low-tech, buy-and-hold style of stock picking he practices at Berkshire Hathaway."

"Buffett and Munger are, without doubt, two of the greatest investors and capital allocators of all time, so investors would be well served to study their thinking carefully."
—The Motley Fool

"Warren Buffett - Ace stockpicker, and now, an empire-builder."
